This is the story of two franchises that are around the same level in this snapshot of time, but seem to be moving in opposite directions. Chicago is the dynasty of this decade that might finally be tottering, while Carolina is still compiling the pieces it needs to reach glory, although it seems the ‘Canes are getting closer.
Franchise legend head coach Joel Quenneville was just fired last week, which shows that literally no one’s job is safe in the coaching world. The Hawks thus break in baby-faced Jeremy Colliton, who, at 33, is younger than some of the vets on the team.
Chicago would be a cautionary tale about paying three or four of your stars a king’s ransom (Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith), and then only having enough salary cap money left for an island of misfit toys for the rest of your roster, but there are those three Cup banners flying from the United Center rafters. That really makes those arguments null and void – ask snakebitten franchises like the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Vancouver Canucks how they’d feel with a complete blowup – if a Stanley Cup came first. Every fan is willing to make that bargain.
The Hurricanes don’t have everything they need – though they’ll be closer if they can fenagle a deal for Toronto’s contract holdout William Nylander – but it seems like things are being built the right way in Raleigh. They have a stable of good young blueliners, which makes their model resemble David Poile’s Nashville build – always a competitive model provided your defencemen can skate.
One of Carolina’s top scorers is Teuvo Teravainen, a former Blackhawk. I’m sure he’d like to light the lamp against his old squad. As a rule, the ‘Canes need more scoring, but if those blueliners like Faulk, Jacob Slavin and Dougie Hamilton can chip in, that mitigates it somewhat. With sniper Nylander in the fold, I feel like Carolina would be pretty damn good.

Free Chicago Blackhawks vs. Carolina Hurricanes NHL Prediction:
With a brand new rookie NHL bench boss and a roster in transition, things will probably get worse before they get better in Chicago. Meanwhile, the home team ‘Canes need beats against franchises like Chicago to put some wind in their sails.
Expect a close one, although I like Carolina’s speedy skaters and exuberant youth to get an edge in this Monday tilt.
